Default What Would You Choose To Witness?

If you could go back in time and witness one event to know the truth, what would you choose? You cannot interfere and change the results, only watch.

I think I would want to know who shot JFK.

I would love to witness Osama Bin Laden being taken down. Im not a morbid person but that SOB deserved the double tap he got! There is lot of speculation as to exactly how it went down - I could definitely enjoy being a fly on the wall of his little shit hole hut.

Big bang. Then I could tell Stephen Hawking how it all went down. Granted we are talking a billion years of watching!

This is a cool thread!!

There's some obvious ones I would've wanted to see already listed and things like the signing of the constitution and Declaration of Independence, but outside of the box (imo) a couple things come to mind

- 1983 NCAA Championship (go pack)
- Super Bowl I
- "miracle" hockey game
- babe Ruth's home run Other sports and miscellaneous stuff

Well technically it all happened in a fraction of a second so it wouldn't have been much of a show

This is the internet so I had to.

Everyone does realize one of the rules was you had to be a passive observer... that you couldn't alter the past.

I'd like to be in the room after Christ rose and watch Thomas place his hands in the wounds.

I'd like to witness Paul reveres ride

I'd like to be with Louis and Clark and see the untamed west back then

If I chose to witness something that may have never happened, i.e. the Resurrection, does it count?
